A lieutenantof the Cartel of Los Beltran Leyva, Ulises Galván passed to the ranks of El Chapo Guzmán, he was in charge of the transfer of cocaine from Central and South America passing through Oaxaca, Guerrero and Jalisco, where the drug was distributed in Guadalajara.
It was known that “El Buda” lived in the capital of Quintana Roo for four month and and was about to open a businesses to launder money.
According to the preliminary police reports, the deceased arrived in Chetumal approximately four months ago and set up some stores located on Benito Juárez avenue and according to neighbors, he did not maintain contact with anyone and also they noted that he bought a motorcycle but did not use it.

SINALOA CARTEL MEMBER KILLED IN CHETUMAL HAD BELIZE PASSPORT, AMONG OTHERS
BELIZE CITY, Fri. July 5, 2019– The Belize Immigration Department cannot explain how a Belize passport recently ended up in the hands of an unsavory individual, a member of the Sinaloa drug cartel in Mexico. That is all the more reason why the Senate Inquiry Report on the Auditor General’s findings on the irregularities at the Immigration and Nationality Department is of the highest importance.
Chairman of the Senate Special Select Committee, Senator Aldo Salazar, had promised a few weeks ago that by the halfway point of this year, the report would have been completed. Perhaps this Belize passport was issued during that period under scrutiny.
Yesterday, Thursday, there was a murder in Chetumal, Mexico, and the murdered man, whose real name is Juan Ulises Galvan Carmona, just so happened to be a member of the Sinaloa drug cartel, and he was also known by the alias “El Buda.”
Reports out of Mexico say that El Buda recently relocated to Chetumal, where he had established a money-laundering business.
El Buda, who is a Mexican national, was found carrying multiple passports, including Mexican, Guatemalan and Belizean passports.
El Buda apparently had ties in Belize, and his murder is reportedly drug-related.
Media reports out of Mexico have indicated that El Buda was a well-known drug runner who has strong connections to the Sinaloa drug cartel, and in 2012, he was arrested along with Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, the reputed head of the cartel who was extradited to the United States, where he was tried and convicted on a string of indictments, including drug trafficking, murder and money laundering.
El Buda was killed execution-style with two gunshots to the head in the mini supermarket, El Caracol, in front of the Fiesta Hotel Inn.
Itzli, went back and looked at the history, and of course it matched yours, because you wrote it. This is BIG. Buda knew the ropes, worked for the Sinaloa and moved to have better control over Chetumal, a large port for the Caribbean and a gateway north from the loose fabric in Belize and further south. Shot twice in the head at a convenience store, after being a recluse since arriving, does that point to CNGC?
